The Lady Goodfellow Chapel


A Spiritual Oasis in a Busy World

The Lady Goodfellow Chapel (opposite the Rec Centre) overlooks one of the University's beautiful lakes. It is in a tranquil setting and is a place where you can come aside for a while for quiet contemplation. In addition to weddings, funerals and baptisms, many other activities take place in the Chapel. The Chapel is used by faith groups on campus for services, teaching and social activities, and for a variety of other occasions. To book the chapel please email
